Any UK members here feeling robbed by the Budget? I certainly do. Earning less than 18k and unable to claim Working Families Tax Credit - because I'm a single guy who works his butt off - I've worked out that if anything I'm likely to be worse off. Cutting the basic rate of Income Tax to 20p in the £ has been largely paid for by scrapping the 10p starting rate. Also, I fail to understand why he's put a penny on a pint of beer, 5p on a bottle of wine and, for the tenth year running, no extra duty of spirits. Does he imagine that that most of the problems encountered in town centres at night, especially at weekends are caused by people who've indulged in the civilsed pleasure of a glass of wine with their dinner? If he does, perhaps Mr Brown might care to join the rest of us on planet Earth for a change.
